Work in progress

04-18-2009 04:05 AM by onehitwonder | 11 comments »

I began working on this in high school, but had to rush to finish in spring of senior year. I started with a Nakashima design for ideas then ran with my own vision (with a little guidance from my teacher). The entire piece was crafted by hand (with a little cheating here and there). As soon as I can gain access to a wood shop, I will do some touch-up work and finish polishing it. I have come a long way, but it is far from complete. Here is what I have so far… created in just over 2 semester...

half carved Sandzen panel

11-15-2007 04:23 AM by Dan'um Style | 5 comments »

Started this wood panel when we lived in McMinnville, Tennessee. Stopped working on it, about the time the Carrier plant announced they were closing that facility and moving the work to Monterrey, Mexico. My job changed. .... a whole lot of travel. Sort of changed my hobby for a while. It took them 2 years to close that plant. Found this one tonight in the garage, Hadn’t seen it for 5 years, Will make this carving a priority after I get myself a new power carver.

The old time woodshop journals #35: From hearts, to trees, to hands

11-13-2012 09:31 PM by jjw5858 | 9 comments »

The latest snow storm fast approached and sadly it was a hellish mix of heavy wet snow just perfect for falling many limbs and trees that had been loosened up by hurricane sandy. As I posted my Kuksa blog I was warmed and inspired by all of my LJ friends but soon enough the sounds of various cracking branches giving forth from the weight of the wet snow was an alarming sound throughout my yard. One after another as the evening moved on. I tried to ignore such sounds but there was no way my...

New to Wood Carving #1: I have never attempted to do wood carving.

07-02-2010 10:50 PM by sandhill | 5 comments »

I have never attempted to do wood carving other than some chip carving but lately I have been fascinated by some of the work I have seen. I watched a guy in Savannah Georgia doing carving in front of a consignment arts shop and was captivated by his skill. My wife and I are looking for a motor home to travel the US and I was concerned I would not get to do any wood working which made me not want to do any traveling but now I think wood carving would be the ideal thing for me to do while on lo...

carving "Thunderbolt" #10: Almost ready for paint

02-18-2011 06:53 PM by mpounders | 9 comments »

I’m starting to get close to completion. I got the base finished and made a few adjustments to the mechanism. I got the hat on the cowboy, which is an interesting little process. You basically take your beautifully carved little head and slice the top off with a bandsaw! A disc sander then helps you get it nice and flat to fit in a recess carved in the bottom of the brim, which is separate from the crown of the hat. You might be able to make out the buttons and end of the belt that ...

Working on a relief

05-30-2012 02:13 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

See if you can guess what I am carving on! I’ll put the answer at the bottom of this post. Some friends approached me about making a housewarming present for a new music director at our church. The wood appears to be spruce. It carves like cedar, in that it is soft but splinters easily, sands easily, and it doesn’t really have the color or smell of cedar. I have always wanted to get better at relief carvings, especially wildlife, with the hopes of some day carving a few gunsto...

1st fiddle by ROY D #7: carving top

05-12-2009 04:17 PM by roy | 4 comments »

here is the start of my “attempt” at carving a fiddle top. I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter. http://picasaweb.google.com/roydahlgren/FirstFiddle#
